Tooth color, tooth shape, too much gum tissue, misaligned bite and more. These are the issues that patients ask Dr. George Landress to cosmetic dentistryaddress. Why is the appearance of your teeth and gums so important? The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry states that smile aesthetics directly impact self-confidence, a key element in professional success and interpersonal relationships. So if you worry about how your smile looks to others, why not investigate a smile analysis with one of Danbury's finest cosmetic dentists?

It starts with good oral health

Dr. Landress will ensure your teeth and gums are healthy before he proceeds with any cosmetic dentistry services in Danbury. That means no tooth decay or gum disease. Using his examination findings, Dr. Landress comes to understand what enhancements make sense for your personal preferences, facial and smile shape, age and more.

It takes an artistic touch

Cosmetic dentistry is not all science and modern materials. Dr. Landress provides his patients with much more. He wants to know their visions for perfect smiles. Does their tooth color bother them? Has an auto accident chipped front teeth? Did cancer therapy permanently darken tooth enamel? Is a special event such as a wedding or high school reunion imminent?

So with information gathered, Dr. Landress can translate a patient's vision into reality, and he does it accurately and beautifully. Artistry is definitely a big part of any smile makeover.

Offered aesthetic treatments

One treatment or several? Smile makeovers vary from person to person depending on their unique needs. Dr. Landress and his team offer:

  • In-office or at-home teeth whitening, removing deep stains caused by tobacco, darkly pigmented drinks, and acidic foods
  • Porcelain veneers, customized tooth-shaped shells bonded to the front of flawed teeth
  • Composite resin bonding, a simple treatment which reshapes cracks, chips, uneven tooth length and more
  • Tooth-colored fillings and porcelain crowns, pristine restorations that are durable and natural-looking
  • Conventional braces and innovative clear aligners which correct poor bites, misalignment, gaps and overcrowding

Additionally, restorative dentistry often blends with cosmetic treatments. For instance, in addition to using porcelain veneers to improve selected teeth, your Danbury cosmetic dentist may use bridgework, partial dentures or modern dental implants to span unsightly and unhealthy smile gaps.
